Jeremy Messersmith to perform at CLC Chalberg Theatre in Brainerd

Indie pop singer-songwriter Jeremy Messersmith will perform at 7 p.m. May 6 at Central Lakes College’s Chalberg Theatre in Brainerd.

“A thoughtful, clever lyricist with a tender voice, the Minneapolis-based troubadour crafts songs that are catchy and relatable, and span the emotional gamut from poignancy to whimsy,” according to the CLC Performing Arts Center.

Messersmith has been praised by The New York Times, NPR, USA Today, Paste Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, Spin and Rolling Stone among many others.

“Jeremy is one of those rare artists who can break your heart one minute, and then put those fragile pieces back together again the next,” according to the CLC Performing Arts Center.
